The Difference Between Federal and State Bail
The process of determining bail is very similar between federal and state cases. However, there are additional methods of paying bail for federal charges. These include:
- A Personal Guarantee From Family or Friend
- Security Backed by Cash or Property
- Corporate Surety Bond (Similar to a State Bond)
Federal charges often feature steeper penalties and higher bail costs than state crimes, which can make it difficult for friends and family members to bear the burden of the bail price alone. Should the federal judge or magistrate on your family member’s case allow it, we’d love to provide assistance for your bail needs.
Federal Criminal Charges
If you are wondering whether or not your loved one’s crime will be tried as a federal case, there are three key factors to consider.
- Did the alleged crime occur on federal land?
- Was a federal officer involved or the victim of the alleged crime?
- Does the alleged crime cross state or national borders?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you’re loved one’s case will likely be charged in a federal court. Federal cases come with a unique sentencing process that’s different from state misdemeanor and felony charge cases. Your friend or family member’s criminal history will likely effect the severity of the penalties and bail price.
